Connecticut-based prop stylist and designer Kristen Meyer creates satisfying patterns out of disposed articles and organic materials. Laid on pastel backgrounds, she meticulously arranges anything from vegetables and crackers to shattered mirrors and old keys. Those are arranged in a tidy circle or square, making for an aesthetically pleasing effect.
Describing her process as “nature meets scissors,” her tangible compositions are made by either following the natural shapes of the materials laid in front of her, or by carefully snipping some odds and ends, creating that seemingly perfect geometric shape.
“As far as how I find materials to experiment with, it varies a lot,” she explained in an interview with Colossal. “I generally work with what I can find around the house, inside or out. It begins as a scavenger hunt of sorts, and then a challenge as I begin to build.”
Finding “beauty in imperfection,” Meyer’s Instagram page is one you’ll definitely enjoy following. An oddly soothing experience in your otherwise hectic feed.
